    722 - How can CHIA solves Cryptocurrency's problem?! with Bram Cohen

    722 - How can CHIA solves Cryptocurrency's problem?! with Bram Cohen

    Bram Cohen, the founder of BitTorrent and Chia Network, in 2004, realized the internet speed and bandwidth was slow, and even maybe a fraction of what we have today, so he came up with a peer-to-peer protocol called BitTorrent. If you're old enough, you might have used it to download movies, music, and even games at some point. Fast track 2017, he found a new interest in cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, and Etherum, and saw that there's a problem with it. So he founded his own "Green" cryptocurrency in the hope of solving the issues that Bitcoin, Etherum, and other coins have!

    If you have questions about Chia, and what is Chia, how can Chia solve the problem, and what problems exactly are we looking at? Don't worry, I do too, I ask all the questions that I am curious about and more! Check it out, listen, and to the moon!

    720 - How Sha Na Na Solves Murder - Robert A. Leonard, American Forensic Linguist and Founding Member of Sha Na Na

    720 - How Sha Na Na Solves Murder - Robert A. Leonard, American Forensic Linguist and Founding Member of Sha Na Na

    How does Sha Na Na solve a murder? This is probably one of the best transitional stories that I have ever heard! Robert A. Leonard, American Forensic Linguist and Founding Member of Sha Na Na, opened for Jimi Hendrix in Woodstock, toured with the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and even Bruce Springsteen opened for them!

    Then he gave it all up, went and finished his Columbia Ph.D. in Linguistics, and became one of the best Forensic Linguists in the world. He worked on cases like the murder of JonBenet Ramsay, the murder of Charlene Hummert, the Tennessee Facebook murders, and many more. He even represented Apple in the "App Store" case!

Best Interviews

I love how free-flowing each conversation is and yet how much info is divulged!

My Favorite Podcast

This is by far my favorite podcast. The amount of work/research James does to prepare for each episode is so evident in the questions he asks his guests. And you can tell the guests are impressed as well. James listens to what the guests are saying, but more importantly- he listens to what isn’t being said. Each episode is packed with so much value. Cannot recommend enough. Craig S.

Great Guest and Curious Host

James has a childlike curiosity which I appreciate, and asks the simple questions to make the most complex topics easy to understand. Great Podcast!
